If you have ever dreamed of being that person that schedules meetings, organises appointments and activities, then this course is for you. Do you like attention to detail, to be organised and to organise other people? A Personal Assistant manages all of these tasks, and this short course consisting of only two units of competency might just be the edge you are looking for.

At AOT, we provide you with full access to our online virtual company to assist you to complete this short course.

View the units below to understand what each unit within this course offers and how each delivers specific skills and knowledge in a practical sense which you can relate to in business.

You will find that the documentation and templates within our virtual company reflect what you will find in business today, giving you a very real understanding of requirements. Upon successful completion of this Personal Assistant course, you will receive a Statement of Attainment in partial completion of the BSB40515 Certificate IV in Business Administration.

The two units of competency of this short administration course are two of the ten units that form the BSB40515 Certificate IV in Business Administration. This means that once you have completed this short course, you have already commenced a full Certificate IV qualification!

Career Opportunities

  • Office Administrator
  • Personal Assistant
  • Receptionist

You may use some or each of the two units to credit transfer toward a qualification. At AOT, this includes:

BSBADM405 Organise meetings

Upon successful completion of this unit, you will:

  • organise a meeting and advise participants accordingly
  • prepare and distribute all documentation required for the meeting
  • take meeting notes which accurately reflect what was discussed during the meeting
  • produce minutes based on own notes providing an accurate account of the meeting
  • circulate copies of meeting minutes within predetermined timeframes

Demonstrate knowledge of:

  • culturally appropriate communication techniques
  • relevant formats for agendas and minutes
  • key provisions of relevant legislation
  • organisational procedures relevant to the task

BSBADM406 Organise business travel

Upon successful completion of this unit, you will:

  • organise business-related travel for others, including scheduling and developing itineraries and travel-related documents
  • finalise all booking and travel arrangements including any necessary credit requirements according to predetermined budgets and time constraints

Demonstrate knowledge of:

  • booking procedures relevant to business travel
  • key provisions of relevant legislation that may affect aspects of business operations
  • organisational policies and procedures required to organise business travel, including use of internet sites and other online resources

You will be assessed for these units of competency using a variety of tasks to assess your understanding and skills. A virtual session means you will be one on one with your assessor either answering questions or taking part in a role play, just as you would do in any classroom, only we do it online.

All of our assessments are marked by your assessor within ten (10) working days following the day you submitted your work. You have three (3) attempts for each assessment task to achieve a satisfactory outcome (100% pass mark), with your assessor giving you detailed feedback following each submission.

The type of assessment used in each unit is listed below.
